No more hostapd

hostapd, for creating a wireless access point, has been included in DragonFly along with wpa_supplicant, for a long time.  Like wpa_supplicant, there’s a version in dports that is the latest version and is easier to update (e.g. no system update required to get a newer version.)  Unlike wpa_supplicant, there’s no chicken-and-egg installation problem if it’s not in the base system – so out it goes.

  1. Good, now the question is why did ppl move in so much software first only to throw it out later. OpenBSD and its version of Apache 1.3 was a popular one. No one ever used it and it was thrown out eventually.
